Value investing ( to identify which  shares to buy ) + "buy and hold" does not work.

Value investing ( to identify which shares to buy )  + trading Knowledge ( when to buy and exit ) works .

I have to agree... but caveat on the trading that we are not talking about trading in/out or next week or even next month. It is to know the idiosyncracy of the stock action and plan entry & exit. When facts change eg management, corporate action, M&A, view and price has to change too. To be precise: I don't subscribe to "buy and forget"

From a fundy point of view 0.5X BV or 0.6X BV is no big difference but price wise it is significant.

RE: The best investment books?
I like this bit in Robert Kuok's book :

Kuok also imparted some advice on how capitalism is not a bed of roses for all.

“Capitalism is a ruthless animal. For every successful businessman, there are at least 10,000 bleached skeletons of those who have failed,” he said, calling it a sad commentary on capitalism.

He added however, that this only applies to real capitalism, not crony capitalism.

What I think - The bleached skeletons must include those failed shareinvestors who did not know about value investing.

If this book doesn't suit you, just move on to some other suggestion in this thread. Love for reading is one of the many pre-requisites to do well in this field.

hi karlmarx,
Unless it is out of print, let's try not to share whole books on a public forum.
